The walls of Santa Elena Canyon rise to 1500 feet high. The Rio Grande River runs through this magnificient canyon as it passes by the south rim of Big Bend National Park. In this panroama from the entrance of Santa Elena, the view looks east towards the Chisos Mountains at sunrise. In the foreground, a Ocotillo with its red flowers blooming in spring stands motionless in the cool morning air.
